OK, this is not on topic but in the fourth season Mrs. Peel was captured and tied up frequently. I would not say that she was not a good agent but she was also undercover, right among the bad guys and at a much greater risk of getting captured or killed. In addition to being physically restrained she was brainwashed several times and once sold to a prince to be his next wife. And yes I thought it was funny!
Just to refresh your memories The Avengers was a quirky spy type program with lots of tongue in cheek and leather outfits for Mrs. Peel. The French name for the show was right on the mark “Bowler Hats and Leather Boots.” I think I like it better than “The Avengers.”
From the very first episode Mrs. Peel is identified as a spy and bound with equestrian gear.
This last is a promotional picture that I just have no idea what they were thinking. All of the above captures are from the fourth season of “The Avengers”
